Would black tie mean wear a black tie literally or would it mean any form or colour of tie?
No. While men wear tuxedos--well-dressed men wear a black bow tie--women have more latitude. However, black is a popular color for women's evening-wear, given its simplicit…y and formality.
NO!!! At best, this would look like a black suit worn with a purple tie. More likely, it would simply look shiny and ridiculous, only a small step up from the powder-blue/ruf…fled shirt style of the 1970s. The one lesson we have learned from the history of the tuxedo is that non-traditional, colorful accessories are never a good idea. YES!! A lot of people are ditching the cumberbunn and going with a vest for 2011. You might try that instead. I know of someone who wore a purple tie with a tux to a prom and it looked cool. A lot of guys are matching their date's dresses. Google search images and you'll see!

Yes, as long as you wear a black tie!
You might have an easier time matching up a tie if you wear a white shirt underneath. With that said, try using a yellow or light-blue tie, if you have either.
No, it is not advisable for a woman to wear a tuxedo to a black tie wedding because tuxedos are meant to be worn by men. She could wear a simple black cocktail dress and if sh…e likes instead of jewelry she could wear a black bow tie around her neck.
